4 p.m. EST

The scientists suggest that some of the genetic changes that lead to MMD may also be responsible for the observed increase in cancer risk, but more research is needed to confirm this hypothesis. The study appeared Dec. 14, 2011, in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

MMD is part of a group of inherited disorders and the most common form...

Genetics Home Reference: Distal myopathy 2

  • PDF
Distal myopathy 2 is a condition characterized by weakness of specific muscles that begins in adulthood. It is a form of muscular dystrophy that specifically involves muscles in the throat, lower legs, and forearms. Muscles farther from the center of the body, like the muscles of the lower legs and forearms, are known as distal muscles.

Muscle weakness in the ankles is usually the first symptom of distal myopathy 2. The weakness can also affect muscles in the hands, wrists, and shoulders...

September 2011Researchers Achieve Needed Levels of Stem Cells to Treat Muscle Disease in Mice

Transplanting stem cells into diseased muscle to help generate new muscle has been a somewhat successful strategy for scientists working on animal models of genetic muscle diseases like muscular dystrophy (MD). One problem, researchers say, has been cultivating large enough quantities of sufficiently mature cells to improve muscle function in animals—and, eventually, in people with muscle...
